Go out to support the Advocacy Center on Friday night (since it's right around the corner, drop by the first of the Bop Shop's 14 Fridays of music with Baby Soda, too!). You can support another great cause, Rochester BizKid$, by buying a ticket to the Grand Finale of the Rochester Jazz Star competition on June 9th. Stay tuned for more XRIJF coverage....
